The RLL Podcast: Ep. 3 – Student Leadership, Black Genius and how Drake Redefined Masculinity



How do we encourage young people to become leaders in the age of cyberbullying and social media bashing? How do Beyonce, Kendrick and Kanye walk the thin line between Black Genius and madness? And how has Drake redefined young men’s idea of masculinity? We tackle all of these difficult questions with our amazing guests – motivational speaker, poet and educator MrJeffDess (@MrJeffDess), Founder of TrillorNotTrill.com and Lakisha Odlum (@MzUrbanEducator), 7th grade English Teacher at Eagle Academy Queens and pre-service instructor at Teachers College, Columbia University.
